18 edtech developments set to impact schools

18 edtech developments set to impact schools | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

Coding as a literacy and the rise of STEAM learning are two key trends driving K-12 technology adoption for the next 1-2 years, according to the latest New Media Consortium and CoSN Horizon Report.

The report is organized into 6 key trends, 6 significant challenges, and 6 developments in edtech that are going to impact K-12 teaching, learning and creative inquiry.

Overall, the report series tracks the five-year impact that innovative practices and new technologies have on K-12 education.

In addition to coding and STEAM, the four other trends set to impact K-12 teaching and learning include a growing focus on measuring learning, redesigning learning spaces (both driving technology adoption for the next 3-5 years), along with advancing cultures of innovation and deeper learning approaching (driving technology adoption for 5 or more years).

Kirstin Beckett's curator insight, October 28, 2015 1:00 AM

teaching coding and programming skills is not just for the future computer engineers. Coding literacy is now as fundamental as reading, writing and arithmetic. All future careers are going to utilise knowledge of computer skills in some form. It should be a priority of every school to offer computer science training to students of all grades. Kids of all age are excited by the prospect of learning to code, whether in their CS curriculum or as hybrid classroom concepts.

Many educators (myself included) do not implement coding in their classrooms because they are scared or they do not know the facts. This infographic is followed-up with an explanation of how each of the 10 thoughts of educators are a myth. This really helped me get into coding and realize it was actually something I could do myself. -Morgan

Innovate My School - How to use edtech to boost good mental health

Innovate My School - How to use edtech to boost good mental health | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
The BBC School Report recently found that 70% of surveyed 11-to-16-year-olds had experienced negative feelings in the past year, ranging from “feeling upset and unhappy to feeling anxious, frightened or unsafe”. The report also found that 73% of teachers would often or occasionally worry about a particular pupil’s wellbeing in their free time. However, a third of these teachers had not been trained in how to deal with pupils’ mental health issues.
As reports of poor mental health in UK Primary and Secondary schools become more numerous and increasingly visible, the government announced new services and plans. In January, Theresa May commented on the “burning injustice of mental health and inadequate treatment that demands a new approach.” In March, the government announced that schools will trial happiness lessons for eight-year-olds and that the Department for Education has announced multi-million contracts for mental health training in more than 200 schools.

While it remains to be seen how much impact these services will have, many in the education “These apps are accessible at all times.”community believe apps and web programs can help in ways that counselling and school-based services can’t. Unlike wellbeing lessons or counselling services, these apps are accessible at all times, are designed with student engagement in mind and can often be used anonymously, circumventing the stigma which stops many people from seeking help.

Here are three ways edtech can teach students about the importance of good mental health, and how to actively maintain their psychological wellbeing.
